Lesbian music artist Hayley Kiyoko has created a gender-neutral eau de parfum, available for pre-order.
Hayley told Vogue why she decided to create a fragrance: “Growing up, I was in the closet and faced a lot of rejection and personal rejection… I don’t know if you remember Elizabeth Arden Green Tea?… That was my armor. Every day I would wake up and spray way too much all over my body, and that was my confidence. I knew even if I were to be rejected by a crush or something else outside of my power, I was going to at least smell good, or I was going to be complimented like ‘Oh my gosh, what are you wearing? You smell so good.’ And those were little moments that I lived for, and they were massive moments when I look back.”
According to the official Hue by Hayley website, the fragrance is fruity: “Bold, energetic and just a little disruptive, sparkling top notes of blood orange, watermelon and freesia unfold into an expressive, feminine heart of blooming peony petals, lychee, rose and pink magnolia. Warm and cocooning, the background develops into a simple aphrodisiac, as milky undertones of creamy cacao blanc merge with a soft, sensual trail of skin musk.”
We certainly can’t wait to try it!
Available for pre-order with shipping commencing in March 2021. (Currently only shipping to USA due to Pandemic restrictions.)
